Samsung Galaxy Note II now shipping to T-Mobile stores, primed for October 24th release

In news that I’m sure many of you will be excited to hear (or read in this case); it looks like the release of Samsung’s Galaxy Note II on T-Mobile’s network is imminent – as in Wednesday, October 24th. We caught wind of this possibility two weeks ago via an internal T-Mobile screenshot, however, as always, we tempered that enthusiasm and had to file it under “rumor status.” However, the good news is now confirmed as T-Mobile stores have begun to receive shipments for the October 24th release.

T-Mobile has big plans for this device, and you can add me as one looking forward to Wednesday. As far as pricing, seeing as the Galaxy S III is $279.99 on-contract, I think it’s safe to assume that we’re looking in the $300-$349 range, and possibly even more seeing as T-Mobile likes to offer a few pricing options based on the type of plan. Hopefully pricing will be announced very soon. What are your thoughts? Are you more likely to purchase this beast of a device this time around or stick with a more “conventional-sized” phone?

About the Author: Sean Stewart

Born in Tennessee yet raised in Florida, Sean is an analyst now living back in Tennessee. His love for gadgets and electronics began in the early 90’s when he received a Sony Walkman for Christmas. At the time, he felt the cassette tape playing, Mega-Bass wielding, three-band equalizer piece of electronics was as good as it'll ever get. There was also the original Nintendo which consumed countless hours of his youth, followed by every follow-up version, a Sega Genesis, PlayStations, and Xboxes. He was a little late to the smartphone party however, not being exposed to one until running a jail-broken, 2nd Gen iPhone on T-Mobile’s network. His phone of choice now is the Galaxy Nexus. He spends most of his free time with his wife and two daughters.

    Indeed, after we ran this story, it looks like there was a purported price leak. However, before we publish anything, we’ll wait on an official from T-Mobile. As of now, their product page still says “coming soon.”

    Any news on what the phablet would cost to buy it outright? Specifically the 32 or 64 GB model?
    I hope Rogers in Canada make this phablet available soon.
